    The two deputies injured during an ambush shooting in California on Sept. 12, received a call from President Trump last week as they were recovering in the hospital, according to authorities. The deputies, a 31-year-old mother, and a 24-year-old man, were in their marked patrol vehicle outside a Metro train station in Compton on Sept. 12, when police said a suspect approached the passenger-side window, shot them multiple times, and ran from the scene around 7 p.m. "This week #potus45 @realdonaldtrump called both of our deputies to check on their spirits, wish them a speedy recovery and remind them that...

    A Virginia sheriff has vowed to deputize residents in his county if the new Democratic-led legislature enacts gun control measures. Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins made the vow during a Board of Supervisors meeting last week in which the panel unanimously agreed to declare the county a Second Amendment Constitutional County. “Every Sheriff and Commonwealth Attorney in Virginia will see the consequences if our General Assembly passes further unnecessary gun restrictions,” Jenkins wrote on Facebook before the meeting. “I plan to properly screen and deputize thousands of our law-abiding citizens to protect their constitutional right to own firearms,” he added....

    LOS ANGELES (FOX 11) - The FBI is investigating a secret society of tattooed deputies in East Los Angeles as well as similar gang-like groups elsewhere within the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, it was reported Thursday.

    Two sheriff’s deputies in Kansas who were shot while transporting inmates from a jail to a court hearing on Friday died of their injuries, the police in Kansas City, Kan., said on Saturday. Officials said Friday that it appeared the deputies were shot with one of their own weapons. “When they pulled into the parking lot and readied to transport these inmates, they were overcome,” Maj. Kelli Bailiff, a spokeswoman for the Wyandotte County sheriff’s office, said at a news conference on Friday. “It is very possible that with their own firearm they were both shot.” A suspect was also...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer gave a tepid, droning, and utterly unconvincing performance on the Senate floor this morning where he repeatedly inserted the phrase, “the Trump shutdown.” The problem for Mr. Schumer is two-fold: First, very few watched his speech. Yes, CNN, MSNBC, etc., will replay it a few times, but none of those replays will generate as much interest as a single Trump tweet. Second, and this is even more critical, the phrase “Schumer Shutdown” is trending throughout Social Media circles – a development which has Mr. Schumer’s staff increasingly troubled. He doesn’t want to be the one...

    ABINGDON, Md. (AP) — A gunman fatally shot a sheriff’s deputy inside a crowded restaurant at lunchtime Wednesday and killed another deputy in a shootout nearby, authorities and witnesses said.

Police haven’t released a motive for the shooting, but the sheriff said he believed the first deputy who approached the gunman was shot because he was wearing a uniform. The shooter, 67-year-old David Brian Evans, had warrants out for his arrest...

    More details emerge about the case in Arizona where deputies refused to ID themselves and demanded that a citizen disarm. Several questions were brought up on Gun Watch that seemed deliberately ignored in the original stories.  Now we have some of the answers. First question, was the vehicle a marked sheriff department vehicle or was it unmarked? From an AP story on Yahoo: According to court records, the deputy and his partner stopped their vehicle, then flashed their headlights and honked their horn, a common practice used by law enforcement to trick drug smugglers into thinking the car is...

Checks by the newspaper turned up 11 people in all with apparent criminal convictions ranging from misdemeanor sexual assault to felony drug possession who have been authorized to...

    RIVERSIDE – The union representing thousands of Riverside County Sheriff's Department employees has recommended people stay away from the Soboba Indian Casino following fatal shootings last month of tribal members by deputies. The Riverside County Sheriff's Association sent an e-mail to its nearly 3,700 members late last week advising them and the public to visit other casinos until the situation at Soboba was “stabilized.” The action was based on safety concerns, union president Pat McNamara said. In early May, three tribe members were killed in shootouts with deputies on the reservation. Sheriff Stanley Sniff announced a few weeks later that...
